The Sports Xchange

Linebacker Sam Acho, who had been cut by the Chicago Bears on Saturday, was signed by the Bears on Monday, the team announced.

The Bears also placed defensive lineman Cornelius Washington on Injured Reserve.

Acho has been out the past two weeks, with the Bears saying he was sidelined with an illness.

Acho appeared in 51 games, including 32 starts, over four seasons with the Arizona Cardinals from 2011 to 2014. When he became a free agent last April, he was signed by the Bears.

Washington appeared in 16 games for the Bears over three seasons.
